Chronic anger is tremendously difficult to deal with, and for many of us we simply don’t know where to turn or how to find relief. Especially in our fast paced world where pressures are coming from all angles, easing our anger management problems is a great challenge.
The Mindfulness Approach Anger Management™ program was created to offer you a set of tools and a road map to make lasting changes with your anger management struggles. If you follow the program with some consistency it can help you better understand your anger, learn to work more skillfully with its energy, and live your life with more balance and joy.
There is much debate on what to do about anger. Some say that unless anger is expressed it causes internal problems; others that expressing anger only generates more anger, and that we should learn to resist it.
The approach offered here says that anger contains a natural intelligence, and we don’t need to either act it out or suppress it. This method is rooted in the wisdom of the mindfulness traditions, which for millennia have studied anger and how to work with it skillfully.
Rather than struggling to get away from our anger, we can learn to really feel it, and eventually to let it go. Then instead of creating more anger and confusion we respond to the situation with intelligence and confidence.
My name is Craig Mollins and I created the Mindfulness Approach Anger Management™ program. I grew up with chronic anger and in my quest for relief I took up the practice of mindfulness meditation while still a teenager. As a student of meditation for over 30 years, I have trained as a meditation instructor and for the past 15 years have taught meditation in a variety of contexts.
For over 17 years I have been helping people with physical and emotional balance as a Structural Integration practitioner. I am a Certified Anger Management Specialist with the National Anger Management Association, a Certified Conflict Mediation Facilitator, and have graduated from the Shambhala Institute for Authentic Leadership.
At a certain point in my life when I realized my struggles with anger had greatly eased I was inspired to do something helpful with my experience and knowledge of anger. I realized I had learned a tremendous amount about anger over the years and I wanted to somehow put that to good use. I then dedicated the next two years to researching, experimenting, and innovating a method to help others achieve relief from chronic anger problems. I finally synthesized my experience and understanding into the Mindfulness Approach Anger Management™ methodology.
